When it comes to backlinks building there are many internet marketing strategies to use to achieve the desired results. The essential thing is to get backlinks from different places. The more variety the better from the search engine ranking point of view. One of the methods of backlink building is using services, such as Linkvama, AMA and other similar ones.

What are they
Linkvama offers the possibility of placing your links with your chosen anchor texts on page rank 1-5 dofollow blogs, within the body of articles. You can write the posts and longer articles yourself or outsource writing them using Linkvama or other services. The most important requirement is that the posts and articles must be unique in content, written in plain and correct English.

AMA stands for Article Marketing Automation. This service allows you to submit your articles and rewrite them. Such content is spinned and then published on various blogs, which agree to publish your content. You can place your own links with your chosen anchor text in the body of the articles.

Similarities and differences




Type of blogs, where the content is published Page Rank 1-5 dofollow blogs Page Rank n/a (not available) blogs
Quality of content Unique posts and articles, not published before Articles get published many times and the content is repeated
Length of text Posts – 100 words minimum

Articles – 250 words minimum

Articles – 250 words minimum
Amount of backlinks to be used
Posts – 1 link

Articles – 3 links

Articles – 3 links
Outsourcing You can outsource writing your posts and articles using Linkvama The AMA service doesn’t provide article writing services
Amount of content to be published within a month Unlimited amount Unlimited amount
Amount of times the articles or posts get published Only once Unlimited, it depends on how many blogs will accept the content
Price 147$ monthly plus outsourcing fees 47$ monthly

I was testing both services on different websites and even though I was submitting my content to AMA, rewriting the articles, spinning them and they got published on 100+ blogs I haven’t noticed any measurable results on my websites. The service hasn’t influenced Page Rank of my websites or their search engine rankings. It didn’t bring any traffic either.

Linkvama, on the other hand, costs more than three times, what AMA does, but it is worth every penny. Depending on how competitive my keyword phrases were, some websites and even single post pages ranked top 10, within weeks. The service has also significantly influenced PR of the websites. Top positions in search engine rankings drove and still drive more traffic to these websites.

Building high quality backlinks through Linkvama is one of the best internet marketing strategies. If you can afford it, Linkvama is the top choice, providing you do the keywords research well. If you find and use buying keywords with high amount of monthly searches, low amount of competing websites, high commercial value and weak competition, you don’t have to wait long for return on your investment.

Valuable TIP
You can significantly reduce the cost of Linkvama by sharing the account with one or two other persons.

    You forgot to mention that any link buying is something that should be done only by experienced marketers to prevent your site from being Sandboxed…

    • Justyna December 1, 2010, 2:53 pm

      Hi Ondrej,

      thanks for your comment.
      That is a great point you come up with. I would go even further and say that all link building should be done by those who know how to do it. It involves quite a few things to know to prevent being Sandboxed. Another thing is to always read and watch tutorials before using any service to know how to do it.

      Hi Ondrej
      That is my main concern about buying links.
      Thing is, getting your own backlinks is so time consuming.

  • Keith Davis December 5, 2010, 11:49 am

    Hi Justyna
    Backlinks are so so important.
    When I started building static websites SEO was split 50 / 50 between on page keywords, meta tags etc and backlinks.
    That split appears to be moving towards backlinks so this post is important for us all.

    Thanks for doing all that research and sharing with us.

    Sorry for the second comment.
    Meant to say – love the new avatar.

      Hi Keith,

      great to see you back 🙂
      Thanks for your feedback.

      I couldn’t agree more with you saying about how much time consuming link building is and it must be done wisely at the same time.
      I think, however, that combination of great optimized content and getting some backlinks on your own is the way to go. When the content is interesting, useful or even in some cases controversial, others will want to link to you and share your stories on Facebook & Twitter and other places. Google and Bing have informed recently that they value and pay attention to what’s happening in these two social media and calculate websites SERP’s algorithms analyzing data coming from these 2 portals.

      It is a beginning of new social media era I think 🙂

    I believe the idea behind each website and service is different. One is just an article submission service while the other is based on unique content and links within the articles on blogs, not article directories. I think we have a winner here, though the costs are higher if you hire the winner 🙂

    • Justyna December 6, 2010, 12:39 pm

      Thanks Cole,

      you are right, but at the end of the day, the results and conversions matter 😉 I like to eliminate services which cost me money and do not bring any visible, measurable results. Also unique and original content is the king 🙂

  • Cole Stan@gift ideas December 6, 2010, 12:57 pm

    @Justyna: After browsing the Linkvama for 20 minutes, I must say that something is fishy around there. How do they find blogs where to post the articles? Do they own all the blogs? If they do, I have doubts all of them are even indexed..but I might be wrong. If you use them, let us know how good these blogs are..

    • Justyna December 6, 2010, 11:18 pm

      Hi Cole,

      Linkvama has got its own network of blogs. I cannot say about all their blogs in relation to their exact PR, it may happen that some of them have lower PR than 2. You don’t get any report from them with information on, which blogs were used for posting your stuff. You can only find these pages with your links when they get indexed and can be found by Market Samurai for example. Linkvama gives great value to the links published in their network, when the content is freshly posted. It happens because your post or article is published on the front page of a blog chosen by the system, which has high PR. When your post slips from the home page, it will stay on one of the deep pages, which rather have PR 0, so the value of your link drops.

      Cole, I highly recommend using various methods of link building and Linkvama should be only one of them. As I wrote Linkvama is a very powerful service but it should be used carefully, mainly in relation to using anchor texts properly.

      I hope it helps 🙂

  • Cole Stan@gift ideas December 7, 2010, 12:09 am

    Justyna: The fact that they provide little info about their blogs and the high price make me wait and search for more reviews before giving them my money 🙂

    • Justyna December 7, 2010, 11:04 am

      Hi Cole,

      yes sure.

      Thank you for commenting 🙂

    Hi Justyna,

    Thanks for comparisons.
    I’m considering Linkvama for my link building tools, could you elaborate term of post and article within Linkvana?

    • Justyna January 24, 2011, 8:09 pm


      posts must have minimum 100 words and you can put one anchor text backlink per one post. As for articles the requirement is that they must have minimum 250 words but you you can put three links inside them. In Linkvama they write that articles are published on better blogs within their network.
      Both posts and articles can be outsourced within Linkvama. However…. the quality of their outsourced posts is not that good. I prefer using my own outsourcing sources. I don’t know about the quality of their outsourced articles, as I haven’t tried their service in that matter.

      Using both posts and articles bring great results but make sure to use humanize option within their system, to differ anchor texts and not to overdo with the amount of posts or articles created and published.

      I hope that helps!

    I used to use AMA but didn’t like it. Another one worth mentioning is Free traffic system

  • Jan's Desktop Wallpapers February 24, 2011, 4:16 pm

    I was actually a bit confused by all this, but thanks for taking the time to explain anyway. It was quite well written 🙂

    • Justyna February 24, 2011, 7:51 pm

      Hi Jan,

      Thanks for your comment. There is so much choice of software and services these days that it can be really confusing.

      Glad I could help a bit here.
